Following the victorious debut of the Reiter Engineering developed KTM X-Bow GT4 in the GT4 Series at Zandvoort and the subsequent balance of performance tests at the same venues, the rule makers made changes in a few areas. As a result, the power of the X-Bow GT4 was reduced further, the weight and ride-height increased. However, the driver duo Peter Ebner / Sascha Halek as well as lone driver Daniel Uckermann rapidly got to grips with the car’s new characteristics around the 4.3 kilometre track in Spielberg, Austria, and quickly matched the leading times. This was particularly clear in first qualifying when Peter Ebner and Daniel Uckermann claimed the front row for race 1 on Sunday morning. Ebner dominated the first half of the race before handing over the #15 KTM X-BOW GT4 with a solid lead to Sascha Halek, who increased this to almost 7.5 seconds, and in doing so secured a commanding start-finish victory. Uckermann dropped back after the start, but worked his way forward consistently throughout the 50-minute race. Uckermann finally took the chequered flag in fourth place overall, which also meant victory in the AM class. The second race on Sunday afternoon from 10th place, this time with Halek driving the opening stint. By the ninth lap, the Austrian had already made up four places when he was touched by a competitor. The resulting rear left puncture necessitated an extra pit stop. It was not possible to make up the one lap deficit over the remaining laps. Ebner / Halek had to settle for 9th place. Daniel Uckermann had more luck and success. Starting from fifth on the grid, he was initially overtaken by another car, but by half-distance had retaken the position. In the second half of the race, Uckermann moved towards the front and ultimately claimed a position on the winners’ podium. Second overall meant another victory in the AM category and a bigger lead in the rankings. The Reiter Engineering developed and manufactured KTM X-Bow GT4 proved its competitiveness at its home race at the Red Bull Ring in the promising GT4 category. The car can now be purchased at ANSA Motorsports to compete in the 2016 Pirelli World Challenge season. Contact Alain Nadal firstname.lastname@example.org.
